Dozens Of Restaurants To Sue St. Louis County Executive Over Indoor Dining Ban

More than 50 restaurant and bar owners are signing on to a lawsuit, the organizer said, against St. Louis County Executive Sam Page in an effort to keep their indoor dining rooms open.

Page recently issued a “safer at home” public health order, which goes into effect Tuesday and is expected to last for a month. Among other things, it orders bars and restaurants to restrict services to outdoor patios, curbside and delivery. The county executive said it’s a necessary move as coronavirus cases surge across the region.

Michael Saracino, who co-owns Italian restaurant Bartolino’s South, is spearheading the legal action, which has not yet been filed. He said Page’s order puts county businesses at a disadvantage.

“We're not being treated fairly and equitable, as far as all restaurants go. We are being singled out as the main spread of the virus. And so we just feel it's unfair, and we're going to try to right a wrong,” he said.

1. Another reason for some kind of Federalized Income during this time.

Help the wait staff and help the Restaurant Industry to help us win this battle with CV-19.

2. If a restaurant is closed because patrons get food poisoning ..

... do the restaurants get to sue the government for closing them?

Can the rights of a business to make money override the rights of people to not die?

accountable for this every hour of the day by all Democratic members. Press conferences, social media, any and every way possible.
